Spanish hot chocolate (vegan)
To the observer, it may look as if I've abandoned this blog. Not (quite) true. In February, I spent 3 amazing weeks in Japan, and then immediately on return, began honours study in Philosophy, which threw me into crazy levels of reading and writing, and the...

Spaghetti bolognese - tvp version (vegan)
Towards the end of last year, we had visitors, including a 6-year old. One night, I made a lentil walnut loaf ( this one ), which the adults enjoyed, but I'm pretty sure she only ate it because her mum gave her a stern talking to about eating what other peo...

I've been slack on the blogging front lately. I've been playing with lots of recipes, but haven't been able to get anything to a level where I'm happy sharing it here. In the meantime, here's an overdue post, the dessert from our early Christmas dinner . Th...

An early vegan Christmas
Mum and her new husband are in Melbourne at the moment, so yesterday we celebrated an early Christmas together. While, in my less sane moments, I dream of cooking up a Christmas feast for a dozen plus people, cooking a fancy dinner for just four was quite e...

How to roast a whole pumpkin
A lot of American recipes call for canned pumpkin. I don't know if you can actually buy it here, I haven't checked, but it's certainly not an everyday pantry item. Besides, I like to avoid cans, because waste and expense. Since roast pumpkin tastes so much ...

Almond and cranberry muesli bars (vegan)
I've eaten a lot of muesli bars in my life. Most commercial muesli bars are not vegan. The ones that are (I'm talking to you Be Natural ) taste rather crap. My favourites as a kid were the Uncle Toby's yoghurt topped ones, something I haven't figured out ho...

Cranberry "turkey" bagel (vegan)
I haven't forgotten this blog, I've just had a mini explosion of uni assignments. I've still been doing some blog-related stuff, but I just haven't been able to get any recipes finalised, photographed and written up. Sorry. In the meantime, here's a simple ...
